To see if Neurofeedback is proper for a client we begin with a preliminary 19 point QEEG. This is done in our office and is a completely non-invasive test. A Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG) is a technique of taking EEG data and producing a visual map of the type and location of rhythms in a brain. The QEEG provides an analysis of brainwave function. We compare and cross-reference your readings to a normative database of 450,000 other readings taken over the last 40 years. This is the largest database in the world. It is how we can determine if your brain waves are regulated or dysregulated. This simple process takes only an hour but produces some of the most important information a person can have about themselves; how their brain is functioning.
If your brain map shows dysregulation, the next step would be to consider a course of Neurofeedback.
Neurofeedback is the learning component which gives your brain the opportunity to see how it is functioning while at the same time giving it the feedback it needs to begin making changes.
The frequencies we target, and the specific locations on the scalp where we listen in on the brain, are specific to the conditions we are trying to address, and specific to the individual. The results become real and lasting. . Neurofeedback has become great news for sufferers of many types of neurological conditions including brain injuries.
